A place in Athens, where those who died in battle were buried, as Menekles and Kallistrates[1] say in writings about the Athenians in this manner. There is also a deme [named] Kerameikos.[2] On every side are stelai for those who were buried at public expense, which contain inscriptions [specifying] where each man died.
